To The Root: Minor Figures
Ever wondered who’s behind the Hungryroot eats that you know and love? Introducing To The Root, where we give you a peek into the products that show up on your doorstep and introduce you to the people who create them.
The Brand: Minor Figures
The Founders: A group of friends united by their love of specialty coffee. The unlikely crew—made up of painters, jazz musicians, basketball players, and barbers—set out to create a collection of canned oat lattes and teas designed to bring the coffee shop to you..
The Story: The early days of Minor Figures were fueled by one goal: improving quality, innovation, and workflow around the espresso bar. The founders wanted their products to showcase the passion behind coffee—from the growers to the roasters to the cafes in which it’s sold. To this day, they are fully plant-based and specialize in barista-quality oat milk. Their love for coffee and dedication to quality show up in the unique and complex flavor notes of every drink they make.
The Products: Oat Milk Matcha Latte, Oat Milk Chai Latte
